Cristian Cuti Romero spoke about the Argentina national team at the World Cup and about Lionel Messi.
Cuti Romero has been a revelation for the Argentina national team. He made his debut just before the 2021 Copa America and has been an automatic starter since his first game.
Now with the Argentina national team and with Tottenham Hotspur, Cuti Romero spoke to Star+ about the Argentina national team and the World Cup. Here is what he had to say:
“Being a starter and seeing the euphoria from everyone is crazy. I enjoy it a lot and it’s what I will remember when I retire. Five years ago, I was in Cordoba and at one point I had a bad time and I even thought about quitting football.
“I don’t cry during the anthem because I don’t want to appear ridiculous, but I get goosebumps. I am the newest and from the time I got here, they have received me in an incredible way.”
In regards to the World Cup:
“It’s the most important objective. We have created a great dream, but we have to keep our feet on the ground and know that there are many strong teams. We are doing well as a group, the internal competition is healthy.”
Romero also spoke about Lionel Messi:
“He is a simple, humble guy who wins everything and starts to drink mate with you without even knowing you. He made me adapt quickly to the group. The day I retire, I will say that I was able to play with the best in the world, the best in history. His way of being makes him bigger.”
